Toners - ELEMIS - Balancing Lavender Toner

Really amazing toner for dry, sensitive skin with breakouts. Never used a toner before this that has been able to hydrate my dry areas whilst balancing the oiliness of my breakout areas. I would recommend this for dry skin suffering with any blemishes, just make sure you use a deeply hydrating moisturizer. Have been using for just a few days in conjunction with some other elemis products and my …Read more

There's better options out there in my opinion. I liked this palette when I first bought it. The packaging is cute and tiny so you can easily travel with it and keep it in your purse, pretty and practical. I also like how most of the shades compliment each other making it easy to achieve a wearable look. However, the semi-matte palest shade 'inhale' is not very pigmented and goes …Read more

I have tried better mascaras. Heard a lot of good things about this mascara but honestly wasn't wowed. The first time I used this mascara I was impressed but overtime it seems to have been less impressive. It's not as lengthening as I would like and doesn't give tons of volume. I like my lashes really long and I don't really feel like this gives me that wide eyed long lash …Read more

Just awful!
Nivea moisturizers are quite good but I had forgotten my foundation at home when I visited my parents home for a few days and found this laying around on my mum's dressing table. I thought I would give it a go as I had nothing else with me. I absolutely hated it! It's so thick and heavy looking and looked so patchy. I have dry skin and as it is marketed as a tinted …

Cleansers - ELEMIS - Soothing Chamomile Cleanser

Feb/17/2018

I love this cleanser for my dry / sensitive skin. I switched to this after getting a facial as I found my previous cleanser was top stripping and making my skin more aggravated. I don’t suffer from spots typically but cleansing both and day and night with a Muslin cloth previously seemed to really strip and aggregate my skin, causing red bumps. I decided to buy this cleanser as I was looking for …Read more

Lovely product. Nearly used up a bottle now and i can’t believe how long it’s lasted. I bought In the winter months of 2016 and have been using it every night in the colder weather. I skip this in summer as my skin doesn’t get as dry but in the cold seasons my face really benefits from the added oil/ serum combo. I love how it isn’t greasy and goes perfectly under night cream before bed. Smells …Read more

Definitely not worth the price and is very heavy looking on dry skin. Looks very matte and clings to dry patches. The name of this foundation is very misleading

Absolutely awful foundation. Not a good colour match. Made my skin look ghostly but the next shade up too dark. The finish is very heavy feeling and looks very cheap on the skin. I’ve had drugstore foundations that are a third of the price cheaper that have worked much better then this. Don’t waste £30 on this rubbish. There are so many other luxury foundations £30 will buy you that look so much …Read more

Seems to be working on clearing up my scalp. I have recently been suffering from terrible dandruff and sore scabs on my head / scalp. This condition has been exasperated by regular cheaper shampoo conditioners with lots of scent and sulphates in. This was definitely more expensive but you only need a tiny bit to get a lather and this shampoo doesn’t contain a lot of chemicals and sulphates that …Read more

Gorgeous for dry undereyes. I have dry skin and this sits under my eyes lovely and brightens quite well. I set it with bare minerals well rested powder concealer and find this is such a perfect combination. Packaging is cute but a bit of concealer does get stuck at the top of the tube. Lasts for ever however as only need a few dots under the eyes.
